“Built to Last”: How Flatiron Built a Runway Meant to Last Decades

Collaboration and deep supplier connections all played parts  

Flatiron builds projects that enhance communities for decades.  

Building infrastructure meant to stand the test of time requires several factors: excellent planning and scheduling, a commitment to quality, innovation and a diverse workforce that can mitigate the unforeseen.  

Our Dallas 13R-31L & Taxiway C Reconstruction Project is a perfect example.  

We were challenged with completely reconstructing Dallas Love Field’s longest runway in a short time during the pandemic. The contract also called for the building or reconstruction of two feeder taxiways.   

Not only did we complete the mission, 13R has won at least three prestigious awards.  

  • Engineering News-Record Texas & Louisiana 2023 Best Projects Award (Airport/Transit)  
  • Airport Business 2023 Project of the Year  
  • American Concrete Pavement Association Commercial Service Airports – “Gold” winner
